Alum In Bread
Mrs. C. C. H. writes: Are
alum baking powders harm-
ful to one having indigestion?
Where can 1 get baking pow-
der that contains no alum ?
1. Thompson says that alum in bread
in large quantities (from baking powder)
is astringent and injurious to the di-
2. Ask your grocer for baking powder
that contains no alum. There are several
standard brands of alum-free baking

Sanitation and Disease Prevention
It has been only a few yeare since
Havana, Cuba, was the hot-bed of
yellow fever. From there and from
Central American ports practically
every one of our yellow fever
epidemics originated. Doctor Gorgas
and his able associates eradicated
this disease and malaria from Ha-
vana and Panama bp exterminating
the mosquito in those places, thus
making possible the construction of
the Panama canal, the greatest
engineering feat of modern times.
Yellow fever, and malaria in its
various forms, arc causcd by minute
microscopic parasites that get into
the blood of human beings and cause
the symptoms of these diseases.
These parasites are transmitted
from one person to another by mos-
quitoes and in no other way. The
female mosquito, when several days
old, lays her eggs in some conven-
ient body of water. Any collection
of water will do for her purpose—
a water puddle, water in old cans
or bottles, roof gutters, cisterns,
barrels, tubs or any other kind or
character of fresh water.
She deposits about fifty eggs at a
laying, which hatch in one, two or
three days into the wiggle-tail or
wiggler. After eight or nine days
these become full grown mosquitoes
ready for business. The female
mosquitoes suck up the blood of
one they bite. If this person has
malaria or yellow fever this mos-
quito becomes infected and after
about twelve days is equipped to
transmit the disease to all persons
she may bite.
Have a box or bag under shelter
into which all cans, bottles and such
things may be placed until they
can be hauled away or otherwise
disposed of. Let this be one of
your main home duties—to provide
such a receptacle and see that it is
Where eggs have been deposited
and wigglers have developed they
can be killed by a coating of kero-
sene—coal oil—on the water. This
oil should be renewed every few
days as i tquickly evaporates.
Flies are found every where—in
the arctic regions as well as in the
temperate and torrid; they are
found in the most desolate isles of
the sea and in our greatest centers
of civilization—all carried by human
agencies. They usually breed in
old heaps of filth, and refuse, especi-
ally about barns and stables.
The mother fly deposits about
one hundreu and twenty eggs. In
twentv-four hours all are hatched.
Were it not for ants, fowls,
and other agencies, the world
would in reality be swarming with
flies; but, owing to these things,
only one-sixth become full grown
flies, this requiring about ten days.
They immediately seek out any
available place of slops, filth, de-
caying or rotting matter of any
By this method they are carriers
of many diseases. Ofttimes we
wonder why the baby has diarrhea,
cholera infantum or dysehtery,
when a little investigation will show
the presence of the fly on the milk
bottle or some other article which
has been used in the preparation of
the baby's food. In the same way
typhoid fever and several other
diseases are t conveyed, not only^to
babies but to older children and
Let us take a look at the various
diseases carried by flies. Facts
have been gathered which show
that one-fourth of all deaths occur
before the child becomes live
years of age and that the greatest
number of these die from diar-
rhoea. The greatest factor in this
large death rate is the feet of
flies. In the slums of New York
where diarrhoea was 'most pre-
valent, flies were found in evary
home with their feet and bodies
literally covered with the germs
that cause diarrhoea.
It is estimated that 95 per cent
of typhoid fever in rural districts
is carried by the fly. It has also
been proven that epidimics of
sore eyes among children, especi-
ally in schools, have been caused
by the fly carrying the disease
frcm one child's eyes to those of
other children. Dr. Green, City
Health Physician of Houston,
says: "A small amount of pow-
dered borax sprinkled daily on
manure piles and garbage will
prevent the breeding of house-
flies. When applied about any of
the breeding places of flies it will
prevent the eggs from hatching
It does not kill the adult fly, but
its thorough use will prevent any
I A|ant to insist that all get

quito and thus probably save the
life of some dear baby brother or

use only half as much oil for baking as butter or lard
with better results and your cakes will keep fresh
